Hanwha Chemical

Hanwha Chemical is one of Asia's leading chemical makers. Founded in 1965, Hanwha Chemical was the first company in Korea to localize production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), and chlor-alkali (CA). It has played a key role in the nation’s industrial development over the past four decades.

In recent years, Hanwha Chemical has strategically invested to meet demands in key overseas markets by building petrochemical plants in Thailand, China, and Saudi Arabia. It also expanded its business portfolio by venturing into new growth fields including solar energy, biopharmaceuticals, rechargeable battery materials and nano-technology. Further, in 2013, the company was inducted into the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for Asia-Pacific and Korea. This comes after becoming selected as one of the “100 Best Companies to Work for in Korea” for two consecutive years in 2012 and 2013. 

In the solar energy business, Hanwha Chemical is currently building an independent Polysilicon plant with plans for commercial production by 2014. The company’s production of Polysilicon, a core material for PV cells, completes Hanwha’s vertical integration in its solar value chain.
